Editors' review

You won't find anything new in terms of functionality, but this freeware does give Windows' built-in clock a face-lift. Free Desktop Clock dolls up the standard digital display with a handful of skins and shows the current date and day. You can customize the simple clock settings to perform a variety of functions--such as load at start-up, use a transparent background, display seconds, and use 12-hour format. Moreover, you'll find features to sync your system clock with a couple of atomic clock servers. We like that the atomic server time could be retrieved prior to synchronizing the system clock, and the alarm feature was a definite plus. All in all, you may not be wowed by this freeware, but anyone looking to spice up that boring Windows' clock may find Free Desktop Clock useful.

    "(RH/RS) Nije nuzan ali zna bit koristan"

    July 09, 2014   |   By vlado8008

    Version: Free Desktop Clock 3.0

    Pros

    Ako vam se negdje zuri (posao, kava...) a neda vam se cijelo vrijeme gledat na sat koji vam nije u blizini, ovo je savrsen program za vas. Ima puno opcija, podrzava puno jezika. On je alarm, sat, podsjetnik, skoro sve sto vam zatreba. Takodjer mozete podesavat njegovu prozirnost, zelite li da je uvijek prikazan ili ne (ako se uzivite u neku igricu sat vam je svejedno na ekranu)
    Uglavnom jako koristan i pouzdan program.

    Cons

    Nisam nasao ni jednu

    "Works well as a dual time clock in the taskbar"

    April 28, 2014   |   By alchemistmatt

    Version: Free Desktop Clock 3.0

    Pros

    Lots of options for customization, including several skins. Can display time in two other time zones, besides your own. Works on Windows 8.1

    Cons

    Could not find additional skins online. Installed and started an unnecessary Atomic Alarm Clock Time service. I stopped and disabled the service, and the click still works fine.

    "Shows a nice large, bold, digital clock on my screen."

    November 29, 2013   |   By john71105

    Version: Free Desktop Clock 3.0

    Pros

    Replaces a windows gadget that disappeared from Win 7.
    I tried a couple of other clocks and liked this best.
    It is free and usable.

    Cons

    No alarms; but I don't need any.
    What does one expect from a clock other than visible display of time?

    "Solved A Couple Problems For Me."

    November 05, 2013   |   By Smeaga31

    Version: Free Desktop Clock 3.0

    Pros

    Easy Download and install.
    Easy setup and configuration.
    Uses very little system resources.
    Works as advertised.

    Cons

    Has no alarm functions & few skins (upgrade available).

    Summary

    As I get older I find myself having to get closer to my PC screen to see the tray clock. This has some nice big & bold skins to choose from. Solved that problem.

    I have been using memory optimize programs and disabling the features just to have a visual display of ram usage. The skins in this allow for such a display. Solved that problem also.

    My computer loads less programs at start-up and it has solved a couple problems that have plagued me forever.

    "Not a Desktop Clock"

    July 12, 2013   |   By NYC-HDL

    Version: Free Desktop Clock 3.0

    Pros

    None noted for this App

    Cons

    Restricted to displaying only in TaskBar.

    Summary

    This is a Taskbar clock, not a Desktop clock. I was looking for an App to place a clock on my desktop that would display when Taskbar was hidden.
